How Long Can You Blame Bush?
Simply Jews: I am reading the WaPo Article Paying for Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq with a sense of growing wonder. The author, Eugene Robinson, starts the article with a sentence so transparent you might as well confine your reading of the whole to this quote:
As President Obama struggles to deal with the crisis in Iraq, it’s useful to remember who gave the world this cauldron of woe in the first place: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.
The rest is obvious: litany of mistakes made by Bush and his administration in 2003 and afterward. I bet you all have read it about a thousand times.
Should I state at this point that I was against the whole deal in 2003, for simple reasons that proved to be true in the end? Probably, but this is not the point.
The point is that today is August 13, 2014. We are 11 years removed from 2003. We are in the middle of the second term of the current POTUS. 6 years on the job, that is.
And instead of asking what the heck the said POTUS was doing for the last 6 years to resolve the issues created, between other things (but not solely by all means), by the mistakes of that insidious pair (Bush/Cheney), Mr. Robinson still peddles the tired old crapola?
WTF, Mr. Robinson? Nothing worthy your pen anymore in the whole big universe? Possibly a trip to the Mount Sinjar, to take a peek at how Yazidis are doing? Or visit the Kurds, who do their best to save the Yazidis?
Instead of carping about the Bush/Cheney mistakes, that is…
